Burna Boy threatens to sue Nigerian media companies
African giant Burna Boy has issued another warning to Nigerian online bloggers. However, this time he is threatening to sue them.
Recall that on November 3 2023, Burna Boy took to his social media platform to ask media outlets such as Pulse NG, instablog and others to meet and decide how much he could pay to stop them from talking about him in the future.

Today, on November 15, 2023, Grammy-winning singer Burna Boy announced his consideration of hiring 100 lawyers to file defamation suits against Nigerian bloggers. This decision comes in response to his earlier promise to give them money as an incentive to cease posting about him.
However, he also said that he understood the reason behind their acts is because they are trying to earn a living.
On his social media platform, he said "Dat money wey I wan give dem instablog dat time, e be like say na to give like 100 lawyers now, But I know say na hustle everybody dey hustle so e go pain me if I run dat kind tin. Why una dey push me an?".
The Odogwu, as he is widely known, has secured four Grammy nominations across various categories, including Best African Music Performance, Best Melodic Rap Performance, Best Global Music Album, and Best Global Music Performance.
